National Conference On Health and Well-Being : Emerging Areas of Practices, Training and Research

( March 16-17, 2019)

The Department of Psychological Sciences, Central University of South Bihar is happy to announce the National Conference with the theme “Health and Wellbeing: Emerging Areas of Practice, Training and Research”, March 16-17, 2019. The Organizing committee is privileged and honored to invite you and your colleagues from India and abroad to submit their original, recent and ongoing research papers and proposals for symposia that cover conceptual and pragmatic aspects of the theme. There would be scholarly deliberations on the theme from eminent scholars and experts of the field. We heartily solicit your active participation in this great academic event, being organized at a venue, best known as a land of Enlightenment and Salvation.

Conference Theme:

The 21st century offers a plethora of opportunities, technological advancements and diverse challenges, simultaneously, silently perpetuating stress at every level from individual to societal. Health and well-being thus emerges as a significant phenomenon having profound impact on the productivity of individuals, organizations and societies. Described as the achievement and maintenance of physical fitness and mental stability, health and wellbeing is by and large the result of a combination of physical, social, intellectual and emotional factors that may change over time and vary between different cultures and life stages. Research, training and practice in health and wellbeing has received little attention from implementation point of view in less urban or/and rural sectors as well as the diverse heterogeneous communities/groups of India. Intervention of state and judiciary in the recent past has significantly introduced more attentive care to children and adolescents population in the preschool age and adolescents studying, preparing, and planning for a profession as per their aspiration accordingly. However, health and wellbeing in different culture and life stages yet warrants more exploration. Thus there is a need to review, share and plan research, training and practices in this area for comprehensive understanding in Indian context to fulfil the gap realized in this area.

About the Conference:

The National conference on Health and Well-being: Emerging areas of practice, training and research to be held at Department of Psychological Sciences, CUSB intends to bring together academicians, professionals (i.e. Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers and Allied Health Professionals), researchers, NGOs and students to explore and share their research, knowledge and experience related to the theme of the conference for promoting practice, training and research in health and wellbeing at individual to societal level.

Pre-conference workshop on the theme “Health and Wellbeing of children and adolescents: Strategies of early detection, assessment and intervention” would disseminate awareness about the problems of this group, early detection, disability quantification based assessment and intervention strategies. Which is less known because of non-availability of professionals and inadequate facilities. Both these academic events have been planned to fulfil the gap between practice, training and research realized in the study of health and well-being.

Two-Day National Workshop on Big Data Analytics

(March 14-15, 2019)

Objectives of the Workshop

The main objective of this workshop is to provide a platform for exchanging ideas on use-cases of big data analytics on large publicly available data. Much of the data routinely available are in the undesired forms. If they are stored and processed in such forms, then it may lead to great inefficiencies in data analysis and information retrieval. However, these inefficiencies can be greatly improved by using big data analytics. The goal of the workshop is to familiarize participants with benefits and techniques of big data analytics. In brief, this workshop would be an intelligent blending of Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Economics and Social Sciences for better understanding of big data and big data analytics platform.

National Seminar on Media & Ideology of Development: Strategic options for Developing Regions

1st-2nd March, 2019

The concept of development is centuries old and it is the most debated and contested term in academic forums. The most pertinent question is how to develop and how to use different media vehicles and also which communication channel best suited for development. The need for development in twenty-first century especially in developing societies is of utmost importance because of its very connotative aspects. The new development paradigm demands social justice, liberation and empowerment as the hallmark of development. Organic and participatory model of development is encouraged to counter mechanistic model of development. Since Independence, we are vying for development, facing various development challenges in the form of social bottlenecks, illiteracy, abject poverty, unemployment, food crisis and shelter among others. Still people are ensnared by the stupefying bonds of traditionalism and to liberate them from the grip of underdevelopment, media’s role cannot be ignored. Media has the immense potential to play a catalytic role in development. But the role of mainstream media is debated upon because it is urban based and ignoring the larger section of the society in the rat race to achieve its corporate objectives. The politics of ignorance is structured; media corporatization and its concomitant issues are responsible for it. Moreover, newspapers and television channels are reluctant to cover the majority of the population what they are supposed to do and hence suffering from pluralistic ignorance.

The agricultural sector is ignored in their coverage, there is no such beat devoted to this sector which means seventy per cent of the population is not covered and hence neglected. In such a scenario, what development can we expect? What are the alternative paradigms for developmental challenges faced by these regions? Hence, the need to hold a national level seminar in this context has been felt and the proposed seminar will attempt to address these issues. The reasons for such feeling are obvious and justified.

The Central University of South Bihar established by an act of parliament is going to start its maiden voyage for the land of enlightenment, is committed to serve the soil. Bihar is a land of excellent human and huge natural resources but the state is suffering due to uneven distribution of resources. The present proposed seminar is to deliberate upon various development challenges due to flood affected and drought prone areas and other challenges due to cleanliness, open defecation and others in these reasons.
